This list is only slightly more diverse than last year’s suggesting that families within the U.S. remain the vacation rental market’s top customer.

Florida is the most popular destination for vacation rentals in 2013 and 2014, according to vacation rental site FlipKey. FlipKey today listed the ten destinations where traveler demand is the highest for 2014.

Florida accounts for half of the most desired destinations for 2014. Miami, Orlando, Naples, and Key West were also included in the 2013 list. Panama City Beach rounded out the top five this year.

Brazil wasn’t on the list at all in 2013, but Rio de Janeiro was the number one trending destination for 2014 due to interest in this summer’s World Cup.

No Asian destination was on the list last year either, but Bali rose to the tenth spot for 2014 due to a more active tourism market in Asia and rising interest in Southeast Asia as a destination.

The top ten trending destinations for vacations rentals found on FlipKey in 2014 are listed in the infographic below.
